If ANYONE walks up to you with a tray of these ...
Do not be discourage they are are the REAL team Edward members!!!
I have told a couple of the "vampires" that have came to drain my blood, that they really need a shirt or button stating there side, Several have had to agree.
If you follow my blog, you know that I have heart problems.
Last week when I was at the doctors office...I must have had my rose colored glasses on when they told me they needed to see me again in a week for an appointment for the
"Cath" lab for the pressure of my heart to be check.
I knew my energy levels were low...but maybe I was just being lazy :o)
When they finished the "right cath. procedure they took me up to my hospital room, to start me on heparin and get ready to thin my blood to therapeutic.
When about 3 hours passed in walked my cardiologist and his "team".
He is a straight forward doctor I like that.
He said, Janiece, it is time to put you on the heart transplant list.
You are a perfect candidate and it needs to be done.
In the past two weeks they have ran all the tests that they need to to present me to the "transplant board" on Tuesday.
The support of Kirk, our children and family has been beyond words.
I have been so blessed.
I am going through emotional swings...I will be fine ... and then have a few tears.
The thought that someone will loose their loved one for me to continue to have mine is so difficult.
One of the transplant doctors made this comment "now their heart will not go to waste."
My thought was, True...
and I promise that I will not let it go to waste either.
Are we ready for another adventure?

You know of Jared's Birthday and Josh's amazing testing to earn his 5th degreeBut what you might not know is that Kira and Sergio left San Miguel Tucuman for a 15 hour bus ride to Buenos Aires to apply for Sergio's visitor's visa....PLEASE pray that he will get it. They interview Friday morning.that is has hit me that Derek will be home in 6 weeks!!! I do not know what airport we will pick him up at ....but we will have him home in no time!
that after 2 "normal " visits to the hear failure and transplant group at IHC in Murray and after spending 8 hours in the office...I will be back in the hospital's cath-lab and then hang out while they work on my weird blood. THIS THURSDAY! I was just really glad that this last week for St. Patties that Red Box had a free video code...and I sat in my front room with my blanket and Iced diet pop and laughed until I threw up while watching this movie! That is 5 thumbs up!!
All I know that I am so tired this week....already....
to watch Josh go through that testing was very emotional for me.
praying that Derek will not have any regrets from his time on his mission, and that he works hard for the last 6 weeks.
and my prayers for Sergio and Kira to leave BA with Sergio's visa in hand so that they can come visit us in the fall.
With all the test that they are wanting to run this week....I almost think I am ready for them to be here...especially is my heart failure has really taken a turn for the worse
Anyone want to put out their hand for a prayer circle??? I will even say it.

He declared him self ready to earn his next rank He did his forms
But, today I cried as I watched my son soaked with sweat...shaking from exhaustion...and near tears too. When Grand Master Jack Pierce announced "Mr. Burgess you passed"
Today is that day!
I love your:
and your dedication to those you love and your love of Taekwondo. Your family, friends and your Taekwondo students are lucky to have you in their lives.
I love you bud...~MOM
Josh has to wait a year to be called "Master"...but he has earned it!

this is maybe a 1/4 of our 2009 garden
We made "mini" green houses to get the seeds growing.
We use Zip-lock bags and good planting soil.
Kirk labeled all of his seeds so he knew what he was keeping to plant this spring.
I on the other hand just "saved" seeds of something I liked in a dish.Kirk and I both agree what I saved is some kind of squash...
I told him I think it is Spaghetti squash.
He is not real sure he wants to plant them in the garden.
(because we did not grow spaghetti squash last year)
Especially when the rest of the seeds are just starting to sprout and these have their 3rd leaves!
I asked if we could just plant one and SEE what it is...
Do you remember we want a SMALL GARDEN!???
What do you think our surprise plant is?

So it is basically Minestrone Soup...hamburger, beans, tomatoes, onions, celery,noodles and little veggie broth to help with moisture. I let it simmer for about 3 hours before adding the noodles in the last 12 mins. Kirk loves home made bread... with this recipe it is pretty easy to keep it in the house.

I decorated with plastic coins, green and gold tissue paper from the dollar store,
colored "rocks" and the most AWESOMEST (YES that is a word!)cross stitching, from my sister in law, Pennie. I love how the colors reflect on the wall.
I feel Spring in the air!!!
